An import Wizard guides the user through importing and setting up the DV footage by explaining the parameters that are needed to successfully track a shot. The simple one click tool set provides an environment which will produce great results - even for the most inexperienced user. Like its big brothers PFTrack and PFMatch, PFHoe is able to solve any kind of camera motion, including zooms and nodal pans
PFHoe also features additional tools, including a unique automatic lens distortion correction tool, support for importing mattes from third party applications, simple edit tools to modify tracking data and quality graphs to aid the user in making data editing decisions.
Distortion corrected DV resolution footage can also be exported as a QuickTime or AVI for proper matching of 3D objects into the scene in third party compositing applications.
Camera data may be exported to common CG packages with 3D support via a range of plug-ins working under an API to facilitate future support of new applications.
